Carrot Cake - A Family Favorite!

I've been making this Carrot Cake recipe for my husband on his birthday every year since we're been married! He just celebrated his birthday and we've been enjoying this cake for the past few days! I've forgotten just how yummy it is, since I only make it once a year! So, I thought I would share this recipe for my husband's absolute favorite cake! 

Carrot Cake

1 1/2 cups oil
4 eggs
2 cups sugar
Mix above ingredients. 
Add 2 cups flour, 2 tsp. baking soda, 1 tsp. salt, 2 tsp. cinnamon
Add 3 cups grated carrots, mix together 
Put in 2 round cake pans. (I butter & flour the sides of the pans and line the bottoms with parchment paper so they won't stick). 
 Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes.

Cream Cheese Frosting

1 - 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup butter
 2 tsp. vanilla
1 box powdered sugar
Mix together.
